Collurabbie North Project
The Collurabbie North Project comprises two exploration licence applications (ELA38/3616 and 38/3618), which collectively cover 113 Sub-blocks (~344km2) near the northeast margin of the Yilgarn Craton.
Location and access
The Collurabbie North Project is located approximately 220km east of Wiluna and 240km north of Laverton in the North Eastern Goldfields Province of Western Australia. The main access route to the Collurabbie North is via the Gunbarrel Highway and Old Windidda Station access road.
Prospectivity and work plan
The geology of the Collurabbie North Project area can be broadly described as the northern extension of the Gerry Well Greenstone Belt, along strike to known Cu-Ni and PGE mineralisation such as at the Olympia and Collurabbie South Prospects. The limited historical drilling identified prospective stratigraphy, noted high-MgO ultramafics (peridotites) and highlight the prospectivity of ultramafic units for Ni and Cu within the project area.
It is proposed that the Heli-magnetics and surface fixed-loop TEM is used to define the ultramafic units in detail and test the area for the presence of massive sulphides conductors, respectively. Follow-up drilling will be considered to test anomalies generated by the air-core drilling and geophysics.
